I have run into this several times but have not been able to consistently replicate it to determine cause. Periodically when my ship is on fire or receiving flooding damage I will activate DCP. It goes into cooldown, but none of the DoT damage or broken modules are repaired so my ship will continue to burn or flood until they expire on their own or the DCP cooldown resets and I use it again. I have died due to this bug several times and it is extremely irritating.
... also the collision avoidance system when on drives u into the island not away had to turn it off after this happen 3 times
